Adrien Broner Celebrates Birthday By Making Weight



Adrien Broner Celebrates Birthday By Making Weight

Adrien Broner celebrated his 28th birthday by making weight ahead of his Barclays Center showdown against Mikey Garcia Saturday night.

Broner, due to give away $500,000 if he missed the 140 pound limit, grinned and knew he’d be on message while waiting to step on the truth teller.

The Ohio boxer was 138.75, and Garcia (below) was 139.5, for the record.

Broner's physique screamed fit, though of course we know that the body someties can lie.

Broner promised to “fuck this nigga up” after his win at the scale. Broner was in contentious mode when being queried by David Diamnate after the scale spoke. “Gonna eff this nigga up,” he promised. Diamnate then talked to the CA man Garcia. He and Broner have been chill and shook hands, with the vibe feeling like mutual respect was in the air, after he made weight.

Mikey said if the opportunity presents, he will look to stop the Cincy guy. He also promised a helluva fight, and a win.

Speaking of scales, it didn't groan when Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller (on left, with Mohawk) stepped on, after his Saturday foe Gerald Washington (right) did. Washington, the ex USC footballer, was 248. Nah, hold ma beer…Miller was 298.75, and the two men jawed, after Washington held up a sign that said “This Is A Drug Free Workplace.”

Um, no one needs to be told this is a heavyweight attraction, correct?
